On the frontline: Doctor Web’s security researchers at work

I think my Dr Web, has been hitting the bottle and was totally drunk. I was being my idiotic self and running my HP server as I have been doing for many years with a Xfce interface GUI and Dr web / Doctor Web, on BitTorrent Pirate Bay. Illegal? not legal? not caring?

A feature film popped onto my server and I could see this feature film was not a feature film and I could see that I was feeding it to others from my server the feature film was not an MP4 it was a .exe believing nobody could possibly be stupid enough to click on a .exe thinking it was a feature film MP4 i allowed it to linger.

So i waited for Doctor Web, to pop up a message and nothing. So i figured oh well Doctor Web, is drunk and I decided to manually delete the file so i paused it and Doctor web popped up telling me it was malware.

Now was Doctor Web drunk? or a bit punched around punch-drunk on that day who knows?

The moral of the story is you have to use common sense and not do silly things believing that a virus scanner can do everything for you because you have got to work together.
There is no perfect security and silly people like me who run a server with a Xfce, interface GUI exist all over the world in their millions.

Now if my Doctor Web can stay off of the alcohol? to allow me to continue for another 5 years or so running my Xfce GUI like an idiot that would be great. Now normally Dr Web, stops them from being uploaded long before they get to me. And this primitive .exe was such an old one.

Let us try to work together. [Philip]

A hacking or an open door?

I have come across people on the Internet who would pay to have somebody spy on them through their modern analogue pixelated CCTV cameras. In this world of not judging people i would not say they were mentally defective just mentally different. Most of the CCTV cameras sold to the West are made in China, and the majority of them have backdoor passwords.

A very expensive Chinese CCTV camera that has a backdoor password also sells the same product without a name a non-named product at a fraction of the price without it software but with the backdoor password. So-called old technology HD-SDI DVR camera systems, are far superior to so-called modern home security systems that are cheap nasty CCTV analogue cameras.

HD-SDI DVR is digital not analogue. Digital uncompressed crystal clear image just like watching your modern flat screen television. And for some reason PR analogue systems are being sold as new technology. Analogue technology is almost definitely older than you and me.. HD-SDI digital is almost definitely younger then you or me but HD-SDI digital is classed as old technology.

Cheap and nasty analogue is cheap to make cheap to mass-produce and thus is the reason it is classed as modern technology compared to the superior digital HD-SDI.

You can sell a dead dog as a guard dog to a dumb person but is it moral to do so.

Moral is from the Latin "moralis" so therefore may be obsolete for the modern world and definitely obsolete to Silicon Valley and its equivalent in China.
I know in Turkey you can sell at an inflated price virgin donkeys, but how do they know it is a virgin?

P.S. i am not judging virgins donkeys or the Turkish.
Thank you [Philip]
